Well after much deliberation and hard work I am forced to sell my boat. As the title suggests it is a 1960 Glass Magic Nomad. Now this boat is somthin else. You have truly not lived life or can call yourself a true micro skiffer until you have driven one of these. This is where it all began. The boat is in good condition just has some old patches where it has gottin nicked in its great life.

This guy is has an LOA of 12.6’ beam of about 44” and floats easily in 3 inches of water. Now here is the catch.... it can run WITHOUT WATER!!!! I know right! Crazy! This is thanks to its custom built stage 4 Mud Motor. I built it from the ground up. Started off as a 6.5hp motor and after a lot of time and work we now have about 22hp.

The boat will easily hold two grown men and a dog and still run 19mph with the high speed prop on. No fancy electronics or gizmos here. Just straight American boat. She would make a great project for a grandkid to make her shine like the olds days but it is still in really good condition.

Now my next issue is price.... I have talked to 3 antique boat shops includeing Fiber Glassics and no one knows what they are worth because there are so few and the are basicaly never for sale. So not only would you be buying a boat but also an investment into a rare and hard to find craft!

Ima start her at $10,000. This is what I was told to start at by Fiber Glassics. I am willing to work with the price since I do need the money. But I do know what I have into the motor and what it is all worth. O and the trailer comes with it! If you have any questions or comments please message me. I also love talking about this boat. If you want the full history I know a good chunk of it after a lot of research. O and the boat is located in Corpus Christi, Texas

Honestly I wish, I’m just going off of what I was told by antique fiberglass boat specialists... hence why I said I’m willing to work with the price. This isent an everyday J16. I have a number that I had in mind and they told me I was to low.

hull bottom looks like a Flivver! I was in Dothan AL once at an auction and seen a boat similar to that one. If it was camo'ed, it looks like it would be a great duck boat.
